Dubai - Believe the hype. 

You've heard about it, read about it, probably seen the pictures. We're biased, but Dubai is an amazing city to be in. But, did you know? 

1. Dubai's 2.7m people population is 85% expat - it's the world in 1 city. The average expat age is 27.

2. Tech is the new black gold: Oil accounts for less than 5% of Dubai's revenue. 

3. 14.9m people visited Dubai in the last year alone. Its a major tourism destination.

4. 1/3 of the world's population is within a 4hr flight of Dubai which is why it's a major meeting point for East and West. 

5. The United Arab Emirates want to build the first city on Mars by 2117.
